Jason Dunkerley has been involved in music in some form or another since the age of 3. He is an accomplished drummer, played in many local and signed bands over the years, and has added value to every project he’s been a part of. His producing and engineering journey began in 2002 when his then-band, asked him to build a recording/ rehearsal studio in his new home in Abington Pa. With the help of his peers, including Grammy-winning Mike Tarsia, and an endless supply of passion for creating musical art, he has developed himself over the last 20-plus years as a staple in the Philadelphia recording studio scene. Helping countless bands and artists get their sound, Jason has built Drowning Fish Studio truly from the ground up.
Nothing is too hard when it comes to the creation process. And no idea is unworthy of at least trying to create an amazing final product. It’s this vibe that has kept Drowning Fish going for so long in a climate where studios come and go. A never give up attitude, and an insatiable lust for the very best sound, are what make up the experience you’ll find when you work here. Just ask any of our many, many clients over the years, Drowning Fish Studio is where you want to make your next recording!
